Success Mindset

~ 100 buzzes
Let's 'bee' Successful!

This hive is a go-to location for finding and sharing SUCCESS MINDSETS and best practices for creating and using these positive mindsets.

SUCCESS, many say, is a journey. Living a successful life is about moving in a positive direction. Using SUCCESS MINDSETS can help any of us to move from where we are now to an infinite number of positive destinations.

Having a positive, realistic, and effective MINDSET (which you might also call an outlook, a point of view, or a belief system) is one of the most powerful tools any of us can use to help us enjoy buzzing through our lives and our careers with great results.

    Why 'most' startups are failing to create an impact
    Why 'most' startups are failing to create an impactAs a society, we are clearly great at developing new innovative technologies; but somehow, excluding a few big name 'success stories', most of our impressive innovation is failing to revive our countries and the broader world economy.

    7 Things to Remember When You're Feeling Stuck
    Fatima Williams
    27/11/2016 #39 Fatima Williams
    #38 Thank you @CityVP Manjit It's an inevitable truth waiting is a part of our life.

    But I feel sometimes we get stuck in our cocoons afraid to fly and spread our beautiful wings.
    I remember a story of how an impatient person who saw a butterfly struggling to come out of the cocoon tried helping it and that eventually lead to the death of the butterfly.

    This waiting phase in the cocoon is sometimes required to collect the strength as you said that required to break out and fly.
    Transformation is the fruit of waiting but lets not wait too much. 🤗🤗🤗🤗
    CityVP Manjit
    27/11/2016 #38 CityVP Manjit
    #37 I welcome moments of life which are a cocoon. In modern culture we treat cocoon as a euphemism for prison, but it is not that, the caterpillar is not a prisoner of the cocoon, but a transformation in waiting and we are not butterflies, we are are more than a transformation that is no bigger than our thumb.

    Let me take the song by Milky Chance called "Cocoon" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ernVvrYH9vg so while his main lyric is "so lets go back to our cocoon" the context is still escape and not transformation. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/milkychance/cocoon.html If we identify with this song, we identify with escape and pain rather than transformation and privacy.

    I do not offer this as a perspective to a single a person because my own cocoons are a source of personal liberation. I am not afraid of melancholy or sadness, for when grief comes I will participate in the process of grief, but when freedom comes, I can place that in a cocoon too - for that is a different kind of waiting. The best privacy is to close my eyes or enjoy time at home.

    Whether it is waiting such as Van Morrison "Days Like This" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UUWkr4FUlo or I have to do what it is I must do for this thing called our work life and I can't open up my mind to you - there is something gestating in the waiting, there is something fermenting in the waiting, there is something good changing in the waiting. Waiting is a part of life.

    26/11/2016 #36 Deb Lange
    Dear @ Fatima I resonate with the wait and the move. I wrote a buzz last week which was well received. I said there is a part 2. I know I have been putting off part 2 as I feel some pressure in myself to have it as well received as part 1, but maybe it won't be. --and maybe it will. I know incubation time is useful but I sense I wait a little too long and need to be bolder with my action in the world. Things are never perfect and are always perfect just the way they are. And can always be updated and improved.

    Such an honest piece @Fatima Williams. I think we can all get stuck in the 'wait phase,' from time to time. We do need to draw on something stronger than ourselves at times or from deep within. I thought of one more thing, guilt can also put people into 'the wait.' If we hold on to self-guilt too long, it will immobilize us. Life sure is a balancing act!

    #8 Kudos to you @Marcel Kuhn Bamert, if you ever do one in the states let me know! My son is part of #BigSexyRacing team now. When I first saw the name, I was like.. huh??? I guess the man is from Australia and wanted to get into shape and lose weight. His friends began calling him "Big Sexy." So at some point he put together a team and his nickname stuck. He now runs the team from Austin and Colorado. My son is doing some half's right now too due to time constraints, kids etc... Life can get in the way! I love the atmosphere at Ironman events. I think this year I may volunteer for a few! How cool that you interviewed Dave Scott! Have you heard of Fireman Rob? If not, here is a link to his bio: www.firemanrob.com Best to you!!

    #5 @Lisa Gallagher - I have done two Ironman competitions: Chellenge Copenhagen in 2011 (Which is now Ironman Copenhagen) and Ironman Switzerland in 2012. I completed 5 Half Ironman 70.3. Due to work and family I don't have as much time for training anymore. I train mostly running and cycling using my commute nowadays. This year i did two trail ultra marathons in Switzerland. I loved it and will continue doing trail runs.
    Great that you are supporting your son in triathlon. I find the atmosphere at a triathlon really great. I love to take my kids to events to experience that.
    I also had a chance to interview Dave Scott. I will publish his interview at a later stage. Best, Marcel

    #4 Do you participate in Ironman competitions @Marcel Kuhn Bamert? I bet it was a moving experience to interview Mark Allen. My son participates in Ironman Competitions as time allows. We were just in Georgia in September to watch my son 'swim, bike, run." We went to Boulder in 2014 to be there during transitions to cheer him on, what an adrenaline rush even for the spectators. Mike Reilly was the announcer and WOW- he's not only fantastic but such a motivator. I would love to volunteer at a few events. My son is doing his next in California! Mark is a very humble man it appears after reading your interview. :))

    @Aurorasa Sima I liked the bird cage analagy and would like to reduce the cage to a series of parts. The bottom being our fundamental beliefs, the bars being the emotional concepts that are caging, the roof our belief that we are protected by the entirety of the cage system. What if we took the person and the cage within this metaphor and stuck them on the deserted island. Based on self preservation i would think that the roof would collapse as soon as the bars were recognized as being counter productive to survival.

    If the above is true, then we would have to consider why did we build the cage in the first place, within our social setting? This style of comparison usually helps me better retain the right question rather than the right answer. A more challenging question would be who built the cage? myself? or someone else? To answer this one we usually have to inspect what the cages intended purpose was/is. In this we can find our way out.

    As usual your posts are stimulating and challenge folks to think.

    You make so many excellent points @Prakashan B.V. I would just reiterate that the art of listening is one of the most under utilized parts of communication. Just because one sends a message, via communicating verbally, does not mean that message was received (even though it might have been heard). It takes time, effort and discipline to master the art of listening and become an "active listener." I'm reminded of the quote by legendary USA radio and TV talk show host, Larry King, who said: I never learned anything while I was talking. Buzz on, my friend!

    OK the laughter started at "unassembled", @Graham Edwards 🐝. The second paragraph launched me into a very deja-vu moment along with continuing laughter. The catalogue/website shows that windmill fully assembled, spinning and doing its job. We order it with the simplicity of what could it really take to complete the project. I laugh because i fall prey to my own thinking all the time. The second paragraph is the metaphor. " The only one stopping you from quitting is you - Don't quit."

    The second assembly paragraph is where you have to start. This is the grit of success. If we don't start with this grit then we will have nothing to lean on at bolt 300 1.5" long into section B after connecting subpart c.

    Great post and awesome metaphor.

    Very nice message @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I still love Sugar by Maroon 5!! I remember when they produced the first video for it- surprising the bride, groom and their guests at reception, I thought that was pretty cool. I guess the grooms to be actually signed up to win (or whatever the term is) Maroon 5 surprising their bride at the reception. They were never notified they won, so the guys were still very surprised too.

    Then I thought , no way is my week ending on a painful cry, but a celebration of what is to come. Mentally transferred myself to a break dancing Dwordslayer with killer dance moves, and voila, got my package and post in two days..it's all honey, hahaha...that my friend is how my energy level got shot through the roof ..

    This post is enlightening. We seem to live in a world of hurriedness and impatience, not stopping to give someone a hand. "You can make more friends in 5 minutes by being interested in others than you can in five years by trying to get them interested in you." is a great quote by Carnegie, one we should live by.

    #28 @Paul Kearley 🐝, "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get." Love the quote your grandmother used! Sounds like something my Scottish Grandmother would have said. And, well said below, "The best way to convey these is to "Be" these lessons." I think focusing on patience is part of the lesson. Patience of the mind can clear the mind so we are able to think on a deeper level and consider others as well.

    I think this story speaks volumes about what is still right with our society. As @Charles David Upchurch points out our old heroes don't cut the grade anymore.

    I hope we can convey these lessons to coming generations.

    The old heroes have turned into villains, and today's superheroes are no longer inspiring greatness of spirit, nor traits like patience and acceptance.

    Random acts of kindness and paying it forward happen most, and happen best, when we are not so absorbed with ourselves that we cannot see and act compassionately towards our neighbors' needs.

    #23 @Lisa Gallagher even though I know how I SHOULD be, I am often faced with situations where I am in a hurry and someone is in my way and I "toot my horn" when I know better. I retold that piece to remind me again of a quote my grandmother used to say: "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get". Timeless. Since that incident a month ago, I have repaid this kindness a couple of times. I think it would be great to have some kind of record as to just how many people stop and think and respond positively as a result of this post. #KindnessReigns2016

    What a great story you shared @Paul Kearley 🐝! Admirable man. I might have sat honking my horn too. I have a feeling the healthcare professional in me would have kicked in and I might have gotten out of my car to make sure she wasn't having a heart attack or something of that nature. He was smart, and in tune. Poor woman was having anxiety. I think we can all miss opportunities to help but when we see someone else help another, it's a good reminder to stay alert to the needs of others. I'm working on patience the older I get!

    Very interesting read Steven. Took me a few days t get here! Sorry about that. I often contemplate this subject. I wrote a piece called "What is your passion" after being asked that question by a recruiter. Like you did with the CEO, I came up with an appropriate answer but that question bugged me. I had to find my own answer.
    i have taken many tangents in my career but I have to say; that those positions I enjoyed the most had a physical element to them. Even as a desk jockey it drove me crazy, still does, to just churn out numbers and reports. (I always referred to them as 'pretty pictures') They always came easy but bored me to tears. I threw myself into projects that meant creating something that said: Pam was here. Whether it was the 12 foot Christmas tree that I used as an excuse to involve military personnel in the Christmas festivities by throwing a decorating party. Or the BI application development that I project managed so I could automate all the metrics I has spend months designing and building. Both are still in use today; the tree was bought 20 years ago but it still goes up every holiday season for the soldiers to enjoy...Pam was there. I leave legacies that others can use and enjoy. They may not know it was me..but I do. That's enough for me. I think that's why I like writing; I was here and I wrote that. That's enough for me.

    Service quotient? An organizing principle for my life.
    Spiritual or Soul quotient? Again hard to measure, like IE and EQ. The important thing, here, is to use every experience to help us learn how to be the best human beings we can be, from moment to moment.
    Storytelling quotient? I'm definitely working to improve mine.
